Home improvement influencers are offering exciting DIY home improvement projects that are both budget-conscious and enjoyable. Although learning drywall or repaving your patio might seem out of your comfort zone, there are many straightforward updates perfect for newcomers to the craft.

Color Block Crayon Candles
Crayons have always been an integral part of childhood, so it’s only natural for many adults to have bags laying around unused. Instead of throwing away this wasteful item, try turning it into a beautiful DIY candle instead!
Create an eye-catching candle with colored crayons! Choose your desired hue from color blocks or liquid dye to achieve exactly what you desire.
Melt the wax/crayon mixture in a bowl using either the microwave or double boiler, adding several drops of fragrance or essential oil for enhanced scenting.
Mason Jar Oil Lamp
Mason Jar Oil Lamps provide an attractive and cost-effective way to stay lit during power outages, and this project can serve as both a fun family activity and teach children about preparedness.
To create the lamp, start by making a hole in the lid of a jar using a nail or hammer and slipping in a candle wick through it – its tip should protrude slightly above the top of the jar.
Add fragrance to the oil for an aromatic experience, adding drops to either paraffin lamp oil or regular olive oil is ideal. Regular trimming of your wick will prevent it from becoming frayed over time and ensure maximum enjoyment!
Photo Booth Props
Be it a graduation party, wedding reception or birthday bash – adding fun photo booth props can turn any event into a hit – creating everlasting memories from it all!
Create a simple backdrop with DIY wall decorations such as curtains, streamers and balloons; for more formal photos use a step-and-repeat banner instead.
Props should match your event theme; printables make this task simpler for newcomers. For instance, to create an elegant bridal shower you might consider providing faux glasses and bowties; at a graduation party display caps and gowns; while for kids parties have available wigs crowns and boas. Add bowls of confetti at the entrance so your guests can shake off shyness and strike poses without feeling intimidated! Signs indicating how best to use props are also an excellent idea.
